  10. Prince blows the hatches off in two consecutive Toronto showsRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday May 20 | The Toronto Star

    He's actually such a consummate musical professional that, after blowing the hatches off Toronto's Sony Centre for the Performing Arts with an 8 p.m. show on Tuesday evening and allowing sufficient time for those hatches to be properly bolted back in place, he and his formidable new 3rdEyeGirl band returned to the stage for a second, sold-out go-'round just a hair later than advertised at 11:30 p.m. Since the second show wasn't saddled with the need to get everyone out the door by the two-and-a-half hour mark like the first, in fact, it's entirely conceivable that, as you read these words, Prince and 3rdEyeGirl are still blowing the hatches off the Sony Centre. Prince does like to play long in defiance of curfews.

  14. 'Lambert & Stamp': Sign of the Changing TimesRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday May 14 | Cincinnati CityBeat

    The birth of the DIY movement, it could be argued, arrived when Christopher Stamp - the younger brother of actor Terence Stamp - and Kit Lambert stumbled upon each other and discovered their shared dream of becoming filmmakers. The pair hatched a harebrained scheme to make a movie: Why not find a raw and ragged band in the fledgling Rock & Roll scene, sign on to manage them and film the entire process of transforming them into a chart-topping group?
